Before starting a new week, be sure to check out the features that made a splash on Hot Off the Press last week:

Pro tip of the week: Do you enjoy linking to posts, videos, and other content from around the web, but worry your readers will never return to your site? When you create a new link in one of your posts, don’t forget to check the “Open link in a new window/tab” box.

    I’ve got to ask. You tell people to open links in a new tab. Which I also recommend.

    So why didn’t you?

      The point of the tip is to let people know they can have links open in new tabs — they certainly don’t have to! Different blogs and sites have different needs and goals, after all.

    Can we please see an article on people using the Origin theme one day? It’s such a great theme and I would love to see it showcased, to see the things that different types (or fields) of bloggers are doing with it! Love your work WordPress. :)

      Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll definitely add Origin to our list of future features candidates.

    Worth the price of reading–open in new box! Why I didn’t I think of that years ago? Any other good tips like that I should be paying attention to? Thanks. :-)

    As a committed and passionate member of Friday Fictioneers, and regular participant in Tipsy Lit’s Prompted, thank you again for featuring these two dynamic sites. I have not missed a FF since September (this week mine is in honor of Maya Angelou, a woman who inspired me for most of my life) and it was so wonderful to see Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and our group, get some recognition for all the wonderful writing that’s done there!

    I’ll be looking forward to more recommendations next week! Thanks, Ben.
